Hyundai Glovis said the rescue by the US Coast Guard of all of the crew members on the ship carrying vehicles was "deeply appreciated."

Three crew members were initially rescued from one room. The fourth was in a separate compartment. All 20 of the crew were rescued Monday.

US Coast Guard rescuers began pulling trapped crew members from the ship finding them alive more than a day after the vessel overturned while leaving a port on the Georgia coast.
